    Default Hawaii Vanda Joaquin

    I brought back several orchids from Hawaii, a couple of them are cuttings in bugs.

    How should I grow Vanda Joaquin? Should I grow it in basket, or pot? With what kind of media?

    Thanks!

    High light, high humidity, warm temperatures. It is too cool in my house over the winter months, I couldn't keep miss Juaquin alive.

    My Vandas are very happy just sitting bare rooted in plastic baskets in an east facing window. Here in Florida, it's plenty warm and humid. I give the roots a bath in the kitchen sink about twice a week, and mist daily.

    Bruce had a great idea. After I soak the roots, if they're too long, I just wind them up into the baskets. They are nice and pliable when they're wet.

    Here's what they look like. The big one has a new leaf, and there's another starting to grow. No blooms right now, but boy, when they are in bloom, they are amazing.

    Vanda Miss Joaquim is traditionally grown in the ground in full sun.
    The setup is that a pit or trough about 8 inches deep is dug in the ground and filled with a 70/30 mix of orchid bark and loose gardening soil.
    The orchid is then planted in rows and supported by a vertical stake.

    Check out this website that has a picture of several rows of V. Miss Joaquim plants.

    Nice choice, Lizgeo. Miss Joaquin is beautiful. She takes full sun to bloom and can get large - you should see Molly Taco's; it's growing over her roof!! Can't wait to see her bloom.

    Thank you all! I will pot them (2 in one bag) up then, maybe in smaller pot to get roots going first.
